In resposne to the comment below, me too. Don't you think a Box Set of all the acoustic shows would be mighty keen?

Subject: Great show
Hoping for a complete soundboard of this great show.

...and don't appreciate the challange of bootlegging. While there is a little audience noise to contend with, this is pretty darn good quality. The clarity of the clarity of the acoustic instruments as well is pretty darn clear. The electric sets are a little better than in SF. The pressure of recording for the album is off here and it shows.

Subject: I Like This AUD
It's sounds pretty damn good, upgrade your equipment people. Truly enjoyed this show with many good highlights.

Subject: Historic aspect
This show marked the Grateful Dead's triumphant return to New Orleans ten years after they were "busted down on Bourbon Street" on drug charges early in the morning of Saturday, January 31, 1970, at the Marie Antoinette Hotel in the French Quarter, as recounted in the hit song, "Truckin'." The 1970 drug bust took place after they headlined the opening of a new rock venue called The Warehouse in the lower garden district. The city fathers were intent on keeping the hippie counterculture out of New Orleans, but all they succeeded at was keeping the Dead out for the next ten years.

In 1970, the Dead played three shows at The Warehouse, January 30 and 31 and February 1. The third show was an unplanned legal fees fundraiser on a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon, and the Dead were joined by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Those shows are also available to be heard on the Internet Archive.

A soundboard does exist:

Reviewer: SkyDawg - - January 29, 2009
Subject: No SBD
According to an interview with Betty Cantor-Jackson, recordist for The Grateful Dead in The Tapers Compendium Vol 2, no SBDs of these shows were recorded. The recording equipment was being moved from San Francisco to New York to record the Radio City Music Hall shows after the Warfield shows in San Francisco... Sorry. No SBD recordings of these shows were made.

Subject: Heaven Help...
A nice jazzy laid back feel to both of these acoustic sets, and some of the instrumental breaks are more creative than in NY and SF.

Unfortunately the souund quality of these AUDs make them rather difficult to enjoy. Do soundboards of either of these Saenger acoustic sets circulate?

And though this set is not as tight as 10/19, this Heaven Help the Fool is jazzy and extremely well jammed!

Its sounds pretty cool. Albeit a little to close to fans yells and claps. Iam checking out All Around This World and it has a nice live sound, clear instruments with good bass. Kind a sounds like your hangin out in crowd.
Reviewer: TenemosRhodes - - December 22, 2004
Subject: excellent show & recording
I found this show to be of excellent quality, in terms of sound and musicianship. It is quite a worthy show, deserving a listen. I love audience recordings and this one is certainly another fine one, giving the listener a virtual seat in the theater. One of the advantages of audience sources is that they are more 'true' documents of events...that is, one can get a more realistic audio perception of a concert. This recording is a good example of this and definately worth a listen.

Subject: this one sounds like shit
I love audiences and this one is NOT a fine example.
